A moment so ethereal
A deep peace within
When desires vanish
Heart filled with gratitude
Universal synchronicity embodies me
A sense of completeness
An epitome of happiness
Envelopes my being
Nothing left to yearn for
Me with myself, on a journey
Without a destinationÖ
Where each choice made is crucial
Where each action reverberates
Where lifeís a spiritual experience
Where every event is prime, not its consequence.
Here, words are all futile
Silence, a beautiful language
Transcends all boundaries.
The dusty fragments
of another day
on my calendar,
hangs upon my mind
like an albatross.
They day's gone, but not
forgotten. This is a
day I can
It keeps lingering.
AUTHOR PROFILE: MRS. SHANU GOYAL
This is Shanu Goyal, from Moradabad, a small town of Uttar Pradesh, India.
Iíve been writing poems since age of 12. For me, poetry is a medium to connect
to my inner self. Though Iím a Masters in Business Administration and have worked
with several organizations at different levels but still searching for my life
purpose that could satiate the needs of an artist, a motivator and a hidden public
speaker in me. Currently Iím working as a Personality Development Trainer.
Poetry for me is divine. A sudden burst of emotions come up to the brim, I channelize
my turbulent flow thoughts and a composition takes place. Usually I write when Iím dull
and depressed to vent my feelings through poetry so that Iím rejuvenated. It was after
my marriage in 2001 that my connection with outer world began through Internet. Since
then my poems have been published in many International Journals and websites- Voices.net,
Forward Press (U.K), Lavender Mist (U.K), Corner Poetry, Brightlight Cafť, Jbstillwater.com
etc. My book, Silence Speaks published in 2005, is a collection of poems written in different
moods. Iím also a life member of The Poetry Society of India.
Being an avid reader, Iíve enjoyed reading books of various authors- Dr. Wayne Dyer, Anthony
Robbins, John Gary, Robert Schuller, Stephen R. Covey,Osho, Robin Sharma. These are the people
behind my personal transformation. Suddenly after reading these books I felt a dire need to
stop running in search of happiness as I realized that happiness is a by-product of our actions.
It is a state we all can remain in if we choose to. Today, my poems are a reflection of this new
ĎMEí and I do not have to feel the need to be depressed to pen down few lines.
